with voter attitudes towards the economy, less so than voter attitudes toward president obama or mitt romney. in many ways, voters have gotten used to the idea of a poor economy, even a lackluster one. and they've kind of gotten used to it. a quarter of the people who said the country was headed in the wrong track are still supporting the president. so they've basically gotten used to the economy as the status quo. >> today in his weekly web address, lynn, the president blaming congress for not helping the economy. take a listen. >> last week, mortgage rates were at historic lows. but instead of helping more and more hard-working families take advantage of those rates, congress was away on break. instead of worrying about you, they'd already gone home to worry about their campaigns. >> lynn, is that a strategy that works? i mean, is there something to what he's arguing, regarding low mortgage rates and housing reform? >> well, he's doing, i believe, a preemptive strike in advance of the debate, where the focus is going to be on domestic issues and the economy. now, what he said is true. ever
a coherent person, one voters can imagine as a leader. is this debate more romney against himself? critics paint him displaying this flaccid leadership. >> he has to present himself as a president who would represent all americans. he said that several times. he's practicing that debate line. here again, even when he engages with that comment, it reminds people of that 47% remark. you see him over the last couple of days. i think it was today there is an interview in the "denver post" where he seems to be softening his stances around immigration. here is a candidate looking at a huge deficit in some of these swing states, deficits among hispanics, deficits among women. he's got to make ground up in this 90 minutes. it's not a long time. he has to please republicans who have been calling for him to get more specific in terms of his plans around tax reform and all sorts of other ideas he has. he has a real tall order going into this debate. >> governor romney is dogged about the 47% remark. i want to show the interview he did this week with a local affiliate. >> if you could go back to that
are below 50%. and those 47% comments have certainly taken a toll on mitt romney as well. for people registered voters who were given a full description of those comments, after hearing that full description, 45% had a more negative view of mitt romney. 23%, a more positive view. >> you think the open was too sports centery? >> i liked it. >> good. peter alexander in denver. thanks so much for bringing our debate day power panel. now, we asked all of you in advance for your pointers for each of the candidate and we're going to put those up on the screen as we talk about this. so joy, i want to start with you. let's show the tips you have for governor romney about the type of performance he needs to deliver on. don't try too hard. don't get too snippy. this is a tall order. you are trying to see mitt romney cast that leadership vision and in an area where there's a lot of pressure. >> they telegraph it, romney has these zinger plan, but i think the risk is that he gets too desperate to have a big moment and that he overplays his hand. and if you look back at mitt romney's performance
middle class secure again. >> but as he trails in the polls can romney convince voters that he cares about all of them? even now after that emphasis caught on tape fumble about the 47%? >> i've been across this country, my heartaches for the people i've seen. we have people that are hurting. we have people who are disabled and people who are poor. they need our help. and they receive our help. we're a charitable people. >> very clear in ohio and with that ad that straight to camera advertisement that they realize how devastating that 47% videotape was because what he's now trying to communicate is this compassion. he's really changed his message in the last 48 hours. >> it's about who the republicans are in washington. >> that would mean -- >> really radical message that that romney is saddled with and he can't get out of the it. >> join meg now is florida congressman debbie wasserman schultz chair. congresswoman, it's great to see you this morning. the latest polling is show that president obama is ahead, anywhere from five to eight points in virginia. that's where the two can
voters your campaign solicits will help governor romney at the polls in iowa? >> there is no doubt that when freedom-loving conservatives go to the polls here in iowa, a crucial toss-upstate, those conservatives are not going to vote for obama. they will vote for romney and the other conservatives up and down the ballot. but the main reason we're doing this, it's the right thing to do. iowans were right when they ousted the other three justices. we hope they're savvy enough this time to take a look at wiggins, get through smoke and mirrors of the bar association trying to hold on to power and defend the constitution. >> so bob vander plaats, you just essentially said that this is in fact a wedge issue. you at least conceded that. >> well, what it, there is no doubt it's going to be a ripple effect. i think could benefit conservatives, which i think is a good thing. but the bigger thing is that you're going to hold an activist judge in check. this guy's got a d-minus rating by his own peers, d-minus. >> you know that there are significant number of people in this country that truly
, undecided voters is that we don't look at the people who say they're for president obama or governor romney and look at the people who weren't very strongly committed to casting their votes, the people who we call in the business leaners. someone's leaning for obama, but when they're asked, are you absolutely certain you're going to vote for obama, no. but they're leaning to obama. those votes are up for grabs. just as the leaners romney are up for grabs. it's more than just the people who say they're undecided. those leaners can be persuaded by debate performance. and let me tell you, look at governor romney's performance last week in education nation, at our station, at the clinton global initiative, he sounded good, he talked policy, he was on his game. anybody who thinks this is going to be a walk-over for the president is wrong. governor romney is very strong. and he has the advantage, when he gets into this, he looks and sounds very presidential, no ifs, ands or buts about it. >> robert traynham, there came a point late in the race where republican supporters really thought the thing
voters this will be his chance to cut through the noise and speak directly to voters. >> governor romney down at least in nine recent swing state polls. most regard wednesday's debate at his last best chance to win over voters. how is his message or perhaps even his tone. how is it going to be different wednesday than what we've seen and heard so far? >> look, i mean i think he's going to get a chance to speak directly to voters. he's going to talk about this is a clear choice in this election. do people want a romney/ryan ticket that is going to look to create prosperity and jobs and upward mobility for americans? or do they want more of the past four years that they have seen, which hasn't been very bright and it's been obama's failed economic policies that haven't been working. so i think this is great opportunity for governor romney to outline his plans. i don't think wednesday is a make-or-break night. i think he'll do great and i think you'll see the numbers in the polls tighten. >> i want to call your attention to some critics of the campaign on the right and the left. on fox news
of voter turnout as compared to romney supporters. i've spoken with officials with the rnc, and they say this doesn't concern them. why? because typically democrats turn out for early voting in larger number than republicans. officials at the rnc tell me they're feeling incredibly confident right now when it comes to their ground game and voter outreach. they say this is going to translate into voter turnout between now and election day, so that is what in the words of one republican official allows him to stleep at night. we have a graphic of this breakdown. take a look. when you look at the numbers of 2012 compared to 2008, according to the rnc volunteers have made six times the phone calls nationwide than they had at this point in 2008. look at the swing states. virginia has made 11 times more phone calls, 12 times more door knocks than in 2008. in ohio a similar story. you see four times more phone calls than in 2008 and in colorado three times more phone calls. however, they concede that democrats have a powerful ground game as well when you look at the match-up there. in virginia d
's to be expected that both sides are going to do what they can. you have three polls facing the romney team that they're trying to discredit in multiple ways. i think there's got to be some truth. president obama is up pretty substantially in a number of polls. women voters critically important. i think it puts the gop in a tough spot because here you have a guy who's defending the concept of legitimate rain or forceable rape as part of the that puts the party on defense when it comes to women voter vo. >> karen, think back. when you saw the latest poll up by ten points, are you smiling from ear to ear or what? >> you know what? i'm going tell you something. when i was at the dnc then and now i would be very concerned simile because you can't take anything for granted. i'm concern thad the president be outside of the margin of error in terms of his lead because i don't underestimate karl rove to steal the election. the tay party vote challenging students in ohio simile because they didn't put their dorm room number on their registrations. those kids are being subpoenaed to go to court. thos
,000 bucks? >> that's quite a mch-up that we're watching there. the back and forth o romney's owrdeidin him in his first campaign ad where he's directly looking into the voters' ice aeyes and now the governor is touting the fact he was'mempathetic to his ate. this is something they haven't heralded but something they distanced themselves for because of hatheir disdain for obama ca. >> i think he's trying to move to the center and it's bical te an'slso not working. i mean, the most devastating quote is this one about he's proud about insuring every kid in massachusetts, when he's against obama care, when he's railed against the entire health care plan of the president. thhenlpeig no i still think it's going to be very close, the debates. challengers do well in debates. i think governor romney's good debater. he'll probably pick up a little bit from the debates. but i see that as his only chance. now, what he haso avoi t th debates is a danger of a miscue in the foreign policy area because he doesn't have any experience there. you know, mispronouncing the name of a country, of a leader, getti
license without a picture is good enough. whats the intent of doing that. they say, pses a voter i.d. law that would make it possible for mitt romney to win in pennsylvania and we have done it. what was that intent? was it his intention to get rid of fraud or was it his intention so i think the courts have got plenty enough to work with. but we're not going to leave it to that. we're going to press forward with doing what we think is necessary to mobilize voters, to t themotar iany states, 23, i believe. voting has already begun and i'm on my way to florida friday to get ready for early voting down in florida. >> sir, thank you for joining me. i appreciate your time. >> thank you so much for having me. >>absolutely. >>>efa, newt gingrich's comparison o president obama to those nfl replacement judges? and then, endorsi akin. which two are throwing theirweight behind todd akin's missouri senate race. at y receive on the show, you can join the conversation, find us on facebook.com. places. you know, i've helped a lot of people save a lot of money. but today...( sfx: loud noise of large metal
of undecided voters here, thomas. that's true generally across the country. the question is how many people are really undecided? how many people are soft either way? mitt romney's going to gain just by being up on the stage with the president of the united states. mitt romney did well in some of the debates in the primary. not so well in others. you see both campaigns now trying to lower expectations with the president saying he's not that great a debater and mitt romney is very good. but it's clearly, it's out there in the conventional wisdom that mitt romney has to do well to turn around that battle ground map that you just pointed out. how he's doing in the swing states. he has never been ahead. mitt romney has never been ahead in any public poll in nevada. that's ominous for him in this state i think. >> let's take a look at this. i need to talk toy about the las vegas review journal out with its unofficial fund coffee vote which has correctly predicted since 2000 and has obama leading 49 to 45. what is your prediction? >> well, i think obama is up by four, five, maybe six points. the
